a fascinating new book called articulate white black: obama and race in the u.s. it's co-authored is sammie alen. welcome, professor. >> great to be here. thanks for having me. >> a lot of times the black ways of talking, they keep us from getting a job. how is it that barack obama was able to use them, is able to use them in ways that don't deledge miz him with both audiences? >> that's a really good question. in fact, these ways of speaking almost delegitimatize barack obama at every turn. one of the things we've shown in the book is how no matter what he says, opponents and conservatives continue to racialize his speech as black. we have several cases of this. rush limbaugh over and over on his radio show plays barack obama talking and insisted that he said the word ax or ask and he kep making this insistence over and over again. his speech does get racialized as black, but he mastered quote-unquote white ways of speaking. he has mastered both varieties and can switch between the two, which allows him to be successful. >> we talk about the diversity of voters on the democratic sid

2,000 young people age 20 to 29 in the u.s. only 72% of them are going to vote, so 28% are not voting. only 31% of them believe that their voice is listened to. one of the key things that's an opportunity and threat is if the brilliant political leaders and future leaders engage with young people. not only help get them elected but do a better job governing. if they don't, there's a burchl of problems that come out of that. one of the things that president obama did in getting elected was he was able to leverage the pair of social media and young people to get into office. the question is, who is going to win that battle in the vote of -- in the choice of young people this time around? >> david, i look at that number of 72% planning to vote, but we know that 72% of 20 to 29-year-olds certainly won't vote. i say this to somebody who is 30 years old myself, so i'm just above that. it is a group that does not participate in the political process, and i wonder if you have some insights into why that is. is it apathy, or is it cynicism about the political process in the united states? what
